Garces, Janice - 2nd Science / Social Studies

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Janice Graces

Welcome to 2nd Grade with Mrs. Garces 

Teaching is an absolute passion of mine!  I am so excited to work with you and your child!  It's going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures and I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us!  I thought you might like to know a little bit about me.

I am married to my high school sweetheart, who I've known for my than half of my life, meet my husband Ben!  We have three children together.   Our oldest is a Junior this year and is driving his own vehicle and I am very nervous about this!  My daughter is our middle child and she is in fifth grade this year.  This is her first year in an intermediate school and she is really nervous about it!  Our youngest is four and is in a learning center and is enjoying every minute of it, just don't wake him up too early!!  My kids take up most of my free time, but some hobbies that I enjoy are crafting, watching my kids play sports, and reading!

I have lived in Mathis most of my life.  We moved to San Antonio 14 years ago, and I'm loving it!  I went to Mathis High School and graduated from UTSA in 2013.  I am the second oldest of five.  My parents and siblings still live in Mathis, Texas.

This will be my second year teaching at Stonewall Flanders Elementary.  Before that, I student taught second grade at SCUCISD.  I absolutely love teaching Second Grade!  It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students.  I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so that my students develop a desire to become life-long learners.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  It is important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need!  I look forward to a great year together!
